The Interpretation of Dreams

by J.C. Sciaccotta

This edition of Sigmund Freud’s landmark tome is as much an elaborate art book as it is a guide to dream-interpretation. Which is appropriate, since Freud’s groundbreaking investigation of the subconscious had a profound and lasting impact on the visual arts. Surrealist masterpieces, contemporary artworks, and works by “pre-Freudean” artists who anticipated Freud’s themes, are beautifully reproduced in this volume. Unique to this edition are a series of cleverly “hidden” essays—tucked away inside two-page artwork throughout the book—in which Freud scholar Jefferey Moussaieff Masson explains (and sometimes muses) over the book’s major concepts while also scrutinizing the limitations, errors, and contradictions of Freud’s work.
